Team Building Workshop 

5 Dysfunctions of a Team Model



"In the context of a team, commitment is a function of two things: buy-in and clarity"  Patrick Lencioni - The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: A Leadership Fable 



The Five Dysfunctions of a Team Workshop  

So what is a team? A team is a group of people meeting together to utilise the skills and intelligence of each member in order to make collective decisions that require commitment and accountability to that team on an ongoing basis. A team works together and is not a group of separate individuals operating out of different agendas. A great team has in common its set of values, its purpose and its goals.  

The benefits of this training are remarkable in developing a team culture based on five values -Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability and Results. Yes, conflict is crucial to the success of any team. This is positive conflict, a free and robust exchange of ideas and views on the issues with everything on the table. This can only take place where there is trust, the foundational value in this model.

The implications of a strong team for any organisation are powerful and real.

  • Adaptable and flexible
  • Collective intelligence
  • Cohesive and unified 
  • Clear focus and purpose
  • Recover quickly and learn from mistakes
  • Low turnover of people
  • Minimal politics
  • Team accountability

The Table Group have designed Workshops of varying lengths and formats to suit different groups and situations.

  • The two day workshop addresses all five dysfunctions and offers the best opportunity for significant and lasting impact on a team.
  • The one day workshop focuses on the first two key areas of building trust and mastering conflict and includes some simple activities to work on the remaining three.
  • The half day workshop addresses only trust and conflict. This option might be considered as a platform on which to address the remaining three at some point in the future.
